Thanks for the link. I absolutely cringed when I saw the plug the stylus tether
terminated in because (old timer alert!) it was strongly reminiscent of the plug
you'd find on the end of 80's-era Walkman headphones. Maybe I'm the only one
who was doing this during the 80's, but it always *seemed* as though I was
replacing Walkman headphones every month or so because the comparatively
delicate headphone wires would break. : /
Is there engineering folklore floating around regarding Apple's decision to go
with an untethered stylus?
In fact, you know what would be *really* neat? [hides smile behind hand] It
would be really neat if there were a Newton equivalent to folklore.org.
